there is always a balance of fierce conversations but it's all coming from a place of dedication and passion for children so i look forward to working with the new councilmembers so thank you. >> thank you. so not only this piece of legislation but others it's been a real good example of how the community and the departments, the city family can work together and come up with a great product. in fact we thought we had a pretty great product when we put it together to put on agenda but the discussion continued and so until 330 or so there was discussion between community and the department, and so this is
a bunch of amendments we would like to make. nk substantial but substantialing in that we want to make them. so why don't i start with having supervisor tang talk about one of the amendments. >> okay. sure. again i want to echo everyone's thanks for everybody who worked so hard on this measure and so the amendment i have is really nothing substantive but on page three line 18 just that when we talk about appointments coming out of the mayor's office just making sure that there is an option for a public hearing to be held on the appointees so we're saying instead of the board of supervisors shall have a hearing on the appointees of the committee that they "may" hold a public hearing and we
recognize that people are volunteering for this body. we're so happy that they want to serve in this capacity and do all the work. sometimes coming to a committee hearing can be scary for them so we want to make sure there is an opportunity for the board if there are questions they can do so but not absolutely subject them to that process so that's the amendment i would be making today and i would like to see if there is a second to that. >> okay. why don't i just read off everything. >> go for it. >> and do it together because it's getting so late. okay. so here are a few other suggested amendments and i agree with them. on page one line 22 we want to make sure we want to capitalize community advisory committee. cac. page two line three correct reference to
charters section to change it to section from section 16 point 801-one to section 16 .108-one. and page two line 19 and 20 add a clause stating that the committee is able to request budget information as necessary for any of the meetings. page two and three, line 24 add a clause to indicate that the committee shall review any changes or adjustments in reference to childrens fund and baseline as defined in section 16 .108 and reiterate language in the charter stating that nothing in this section shall limit the authority of the mayor
and the board of supervisors to propose, amend and adopted a budget under article nine of the charter. page three -- page five line seven. in addition to city employees sfusd employees also cannot serve as a member of the oversight and advisory committee due to possible conflict of interest. line seven -- i mean page seven lines three and four add line to indicate that the oversight and advisory committee shall develop initial bylaws for the service providers working group and will appoint the initial chair and vice chair, and last page seven line 10 add that the service provider working group shall review and amend their bylaws as
necessary. and that was the last of the amendments. okay. so any discussions on the amendments? okay. can i have a motion? >> i would like to make a motion to adopt all of the amendments stated by myself and supervisor yee. >> okay. any objection? seeing no objection amendments passes. could i have a motion for -- >> through the chair i would like to make a motion to adopt item five as amended and sends it with a full recommendation -- with a positive recommendation to the full board of supervisors. >> any objection? seeing none the motion passes. okay. so what am i doing now? are there any other items? >> no further business today. >> okay. meeting adjourned. thank you very much.
. >> good afternoon, everyone, welcome to the city and county of san francisco neighborhood and safety committee. my name is david camp camp, i am chair of the committee, we are joined today by committee member supervisor norman yee, eric mar will be excused. clerk of the committee is derrick evans and we want to thank mark bunch, mr. clerk, do we have any announcements? >> thank you, mr. chair. please make sure to silence all cell phones and electronic devices. speaker cards and copies of documents to be included in the file should be handed to the clerk. >> this is the first meeting of this committee in the new year, so happy new year, everyone. before we go on to our items can we have a motion to excuse supervisor mar? so we have a
motion by supervisor yee without objection, supervisor mar is excused. mr. clerk, if you can please call item 1. >> item 1 is a hearing on proposed hearing shelter rules including but not limited to the reasons necessitating the promulgation of such rules and the imposition of uniform rules and requesting that the human services agency and department of public health and mayor's office on disability report. >> this is a very important item introduced by supervisor jane kim. supervisor kim has asked that we continue this item to the call of the chair and we will make sure whether we remain chair or not that it's put on the next agenda. before we act on that, if we can open it up to public comment, even though the item will be continued any member of the public who would like to speak on this item you have an opportunity to speak. you have
up to 3 minutes. if you'd like please come on up. >> yes, i am here regarding this issue. i guess i just am very concerned in that it seems like the shelters are creating all these rules and being willing to say things like who they were and were not going to allow into the shelter system based on ability or disability. so i guess i'm just very, i guess i'm just very angry and concerned in that they are going to exclude people from these shelters on ability or disability and then they are going to come back to the board of supervisors and the city and county of san francisco and then start to ask for more money later. and then the other parts of it was they are talking about tape
recordings and different things like this and it's very concerning in that they are going to set up all the rules and regulations regarding what's going to happen in the shelter systems. and on average the people who live in these shelters don't have a voice. and then if they do come to the meeting they might get retaliated against or they are so overran by service providers that what they have to say is going to be negated. so these are some of my main concerns and i think for me the other part of the situation is how do we get to more of a transparency regarding holding the service providers accountable for improprieties? so if you understand their history there's been some major criminal activities that have
happened in the shelter systems and i'm wondering if there's any real safeguards for any of those people who have done major criminal activities in the shelters from reapplying to another shelter system or to that shelter system after the people who have fired them move on to somewhere else. so i think we need some more teeth and somebody that will be more transparent to the public. i don't think that body is the department of human services. their staff, no faith in them holding their service providers accountable. thank you. >> thank you, sir.
seeing no other member of the public to speak on this item, public comment is closed. if we could have a motion to continue this item to the doll of the chair? motion by supervisor yee. if we can take that without objection. without objection, this item will be continued to the call of the chair. mr. clerk. >> item 2 is the transfer of a transfer beer and wine public premises license from 638 4th street to 855harrison street for todd zucker for bbck enterprises, d.b.a. k & l wine merchants. >> we have heard from our police department who has requested this item be filed. there was a misunderstanding concerning whether or not this type of review was needed but before we take action on that request i'd like to open it up to public comment. any member of the public who would like to speak on this item? seeing
none public comment is closed. i don't know if our alu would like to say anything beyond that. great. so if we could have a motion to file this item, motion by supervisor yee, we'll take that without objection. thank you. mr. clerk, if you can call item no. 3. >> item no. 3 is a hearing to consider the transfer of a type 48 on sale public premises license for expansion of premises located at 101 6th street the to tadd cortell dooing business as monarch. >> if we can begin by asking the applicant to come and speak. good afternoon, welcome to the neighborhood services committee. >> it's pretty much what derek mentioned. >> if you can identify yourself. >> tadd cortell from electric resistance society. we operate under the name of monarch. we
expanded into a location next door to our current location where we have been the past 3 years. we operate a nightclub and cocktail lounge. we expanded the cocktail lounge portion upstairs into the property next door and the abc required that we get a pcn approval. that is why we're here this afternoon. >> can you talk a little bit about your interaction with the community, discussions with the district supervisor? >> we've been in contact with sunny at jane kim's office, who is our supervisor at district 6. she has been following the progress and we have been keeping her abreast what is going on. it took a while but we got copies of approval letters. we let the neighborhood noi if there was any concerns or protests we would address them when we were made aware of them, and there were none.
>> i know supervisor kim and her office are in support of this application. colleagues, any questions of the applicant? great. thank you very much, sir. why don't we now hear from our police department. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >>. >> good afternoon, supervisors, my name is al dwarte mr. tadd cortell has applied for a type 48 on sale general public premises license for the expansion of the premises located at 101 6th street. monarch is adding approximately 400 feet to an adjacent space that became available to their premises. monarch is currently conditioned by pcn file 100834, passed by resolution 447-10 dated september 21, 2010. none of the current operating
conditions will change or be removed. the police and calls for service as well as the reports are pretty minimal. there was one police call for the year of march 2013 when the process started for the licensing of the premises till march twebt 14. five police reports were reported for that and they were merely lost or stolen items. the plot is 222 and there are approximately 408 reported incidents for 2013, which places it in a high crime area. the census track itself is 176.01 with a population of 7,630 people, which allows for 26 licenses for on sale restaurant or bar but are or show active of 74 licenses. there were no letters of protest, no letters filed with
our office and therefore the alu recommends an approval. >> thank you very much, lieutenant. colleagues, any questions? thank you. >> thank you. >> why don't we now open it up for public comment. any member of the public who likes to speak on this item, please come forward. seeing none, public comment is closed. supervisor yee. >> so i don't see any reason for not supporting this. seems like the owners have been good neighbors and as you already mentioned, supervisor kim is supporting this so i make a motion to pass it out with a positive recommendation. >> so we have a motion to move this forward with a positive recommendation. if we can take that without objection, without objection, congratulations. thank you very much for your work with the community. mr. clerk, do we have any other business before this committee? >> there is no more business, mr. chair. >> thank you very much, meeting adjourned. (meeting adjourned).
>> we are here at the urban center on mission street in san francisco. we have 3 guest today. we have david constructional engineer and bill harvey. i want to talk about urban myths. what do you think about earthquakes, can you tell if they are coming in advance? >> he's sleeping during those earthquakes? >> have you noticed him take any special? >> no. he sleeps right through them. there is no truth that i'm aware of with harvey that dogs are aware of an impending earthquake. >> you hear the myth all the time. suppose the dog helps you get up, is it going to help you do something >> i hear they are aware of small vibrations. but yes, i
read extensively that dogs cannot realize earthquakes. >> today is a spectacular day in san francisco and sometimes people would say this is earthquake weather. is this earthquake weather? >> no. not that i have heard of. no such thing. >> there is no such thing. >> we are talking about the weather in a daily or weekly cycle. there is no relationship. i have heard it's hot or cold weather or rain. i'm not sure which is the myth. >> how about time of day? >> yes. it happens when it's least convenient. when it happens people say we were lucky and when they don't. it's terrible timing. it's never a
good time for an earthquake. >> but we are going to have one. >> how about the ground swallowing people into the ground? >> like the earth that collapsed? it's not like the tv shows. >> the earth does move and it bumps up and you get a ground fracture but it's not something that opens up and sucks you up into haddes. >> it's not going anywhere. we are going to have a lot of damage, but this myth that
california is going to the ocean is not real. >> southern california is moving north. it's coming up from the south to the north. >> you would have to invest the million year cycle, not weeks or years. maybe millions of years from now, part of los angeles will be in the bay area. >> for better or worse. >> yes. >> this is a tough question. >> those other ones weren't tough. >> this is a really easy challenge. are the smaller ones less stress? >> yes. the amount released in small earthquakes is that they are so small in you need many of those. >> i think would you probably have to have maybe hundreds of
magnitude earthquakes of 4.7. >> so small earthquakes are not making our lives better in the future? >> not anyway that you can count on. >> i have heard that buildings in san francisco are on rollers and isolated? >> it's not true. it's a conventional foundation like almost all the circumstances buildings in san francisco. >> the trans-america was built way before. it's a pretty conventional foundation design. >> i have heard about this thing called the triangle of life and up you are supposed to go to the edge of your bed to save yourself. is there anything of value to that ? >> yes, if you are in your
room. you should drop, cover and hold onto something. if you are in school, same thing, kitchen same thing. if you happen to be in your bed, and you rollover your bed, it's not a bad place to be. >> the reality is when we have a major earthquake the ground shaking so pronounced that you are not going to be able to get up and go anywhere. you are pretty much staying where you are when that earthquake hits. you are not going to be able to stand up and run with gravity. >> you want to get under the door frame but you are not moving to great distances. >> where can i buy a richter scale? >> mr. richter is selling it. we are going to put a plug in for cold hardware. they are not available. it's a rather complex. >> in fact we don't even use
the richter scale anymore. we use a moment magnitude. the richter scale was early technology. >> probably a myth that i hear most often is my building is just fine in the loma prieta earthquake so everything is fine. is that true ? >> loma prieta was different. the ground acceleration here was quite moderate and the duration was moderate. so anyone that believes they survived a big earthquake and their building has been tested is sadly mistaken. >> we are planning for the bigger earthquake closer to san francisco and a fault totally independent. >> much stronger than the loma prieta earthquake. >> so people who were here in
'89 they should say 3 times as strong and twice as long and that will give them more of an occasion of the earthquake we would have. 10 percent isn't really the threshold of damage. when you triple it you cross that line. it's much more damage in earthquake. >> i want to thank you, harvey, thanks pat for . >> good afternoon and welcome to the transportation authority special meeting of the subcommittee on december 11, 2014, my na
